"THE BIBLE" Moira Timms (REVELATION, the 'SEVEN SEALS' & CHAKRAS AS INTERNAL TECHNOLOGY)
NOTE FROM JEFF: The ancient prophecies of "doom and gloom" seem to be coming true as I write this now...but why and how is this happening? Surely the Earth has always had volcanic eruptions and earth-quakes, naturally, of her own accord; surely, the sun has its own cycles and variations which affect life here; surely, cosmic energies and celestial bodies have always influenced and interacted with the Earth; surely, we may indeed be in a 'window of alignment' of cosmic geometries and/or passing through a cloud of energetic emanations that only happens every few tens of thousands of years. SURELY all this is true. But HOW CAN WE POSSIBLY distinguish what is 'really' happening from what 'seems' to be happening, given our collective obsession with unreality and the "artificial world of our own creation" that Rachel Carson warned of? Moreover, why does it appear to be that much of the current dooms-day destruction is actually being waged by humans and against humans, using extremely advanced technologies on a par with where Atlantis was at just before she went down (as the story goes). Speaking of stories, what greater story could be told than that of the "Heberu", the ancient nomadic tribe expelled from Egypt from trying to take over there...you know it well, the whole story of THE BIBLE..."God", Jesus, the old and new testaments...the greatest work of fiction ever foisted on humanity and held to be 'true' by so many. Look around...it was all a set-up and we've swallowed it hook, line and sinker. Silly us...it's US who've been creating all the problems. And it's US who are responsible. Surely creative forces infinitely more powerful than us exist; we didn't create the universe or the beauty of the Earth. Part of why we are here is to understand the spiritual responsibility of our creativity and our existence here. To me, it makes a lot more sense to be thinking about doing "inner work" and what the science of chakras is really about, instead of consuming more fictitious bullshit, blaming somebody else for what is happening, and waiting to be "saved" by Jesus or extra-terrestrials...or Robama! Question: is there anything we 'know' or experience that ISN'T in the 'province of the mind.? How do we 'get outside' of our own minds in order to know "reality"?
"In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true." Dr. John C. Lilly
(Chapter 12 from Beyond Prophecies and Predictions, Moira Timms, 1994)
“…the seven seals are allegorical to each of the seven chakras (energy centers, like valves between the etheric and physical bodies, which are related to the endrocrine system) of the human body. With the opening of each seal comes “revelation” and the opportunity to be purified and transformed by the particular energies released. The more successful we are in handling and transmuting within ourselves (i.e., within each chakra) the intense surge of purifying energy released by the opening of each seal, the less necessary it is for these releases to manifest in the external world as chaos and catastrophe.”
“For no prophecy of scriptures ever originated in the mind of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (II Peter 1:21)
The Bible contains many prophecies and references to “the fullness of time”, “the harvest”, the “latter” or “last days”, the “purification of the nations” and the battle of Armageddon. God spoke clearly in these times (and sometimes not so clearly) through his prophets of the Old Testament, through the disciples who recorded the life and teachings of Jesus in the Gospels, and through John’s vision of the Revelation. The various biblical prophecies present warnings to the reader of the signs to watch before the finale, so that all who receive the message might prepare themselves, and be awakened to their spiritual identity and divine heritage. Again, we stress that it is not the end of the world that is predicted, but the end of the Piscean age and present world system. Preparation is needed to achieve sufficient faith, strength, understanding, and purity to make the transition to that promised land of a highly evolved and truly righteous society of the Aquarian, Golden or New Age. It will usher in the final stage of the Yuga, the 26,000 equinoctial cycle, and culminate in the evolution of humanity to a spiritual/fourth dimensional state of consciousness. The Bible records that it has always been God’s way to provide ample time and forewarning before catastrophes or judgments. A renewal of religious interest and spiritual awakening are important signs of the predicted times, and this is happening today.
In the ancient world of the Hebrew prophets, villages and centers of trade and commerce were scattered over an arid landscape of relentless sunlight and hazy barren hills. The prophets who emerged to stir the pulse of conscience were a remarkable breed of men. Wandering between communities and royal cities, they would often appear out of the wilderness areas to warn or admonish, help or advise. They were probably a thorn in the flesh of the populace, feared yet revered, as they spoke out against kings, corruption, and unGodliness. Through His prophets, God spoke directly in those days to people who would hear, and dealt just retribution to those who would not; or so it seemed. It was a simple affair, uncomplicated by the intricacies of technology and media.
A criticism aimed at Biblical prophecies is that describe events of the prophets’ own times. But this would not necessarily disqualify a prophecy from being true for our time, too. You can get a lot of mileage out of the major biblical prophecies because they deal with archetypal myths and images. While the perennial wisdom enables us to transcend the conditions of the world, it is the perennial ignorance that brings down the negative aspects of history that repeat in such predictable patterns. That is to say, failure to live according to natural law and divine will has consequences – returning karma. Biblical prophecy lets people know that God keeps His promises and covenants, and helps them understand more clearly God’s will and the moral standards by which He judges, in order that people may harmonize their lives with them and thereby avoid suffering.
In the visions of the various Hebrew prophets, we see again and again events quite similar, if not identical, to those recorded in the annals of many ancient peoples, several of which are discussed in the chapter on Pole Shift. The prophets quoted below lives just prior to the great cosmic upheavals that appear to have accompanied the “brief anomaly” of magnetic pole reversal around 860 B.C. If events that happened then are about to recur, the prophecy is still good. For example, the Book of Joel, form which the following quotes are excerpted, opens with Joel instructing the people to repeat to as many future generations as possible the prophecy he is about to give on the coming “day of the Lord”:
Joel, c. 820 B.C., “The Earth shall quake before them, the heavens shall tremble; the sun and moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.” (2:10)
“And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord to come.” (2:30-32)
Amos, c. 800 B.C., “And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to do down at noon, and I will darken the Earth in the clear day.” (8:9)
Isaiah, c. 775 B.C., “For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light; the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine…Therefore I will shake the heavens and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.” (13:10 and 13:13)
Habbakuk, c. 628 B.C., “He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow.” (3:6)
Many centuries later the Gospels were written. They are accounts of the life and teachings of Jesus as written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These men also recorded in a firsthand and informal way very interesting information about the people and customs of two thousand years ago. The culture was still predominantly Greek, with Roman politics and Jewish religion. The political, social and moral attitudes of that time were quite corrupt, not so very different from our own, and the disciples who wrote the gospels originally were just plain folk from all walks of life. Matthew was a former tax collector, and Mark a scholar from a wealthy family. Luke had been a physician, and John (who also later wrote the Revelation) was a fisherman.
One day, on the Mount of Olives in the Judean hills, the disciples asked Jesus privately when the end would be, and what would be the signs of His coming again. Jesus spoke of wars and rumors of wars, of famines, of pestilence, and earthquakes, and said that they would be but the beginning of troubles. He warned of religions persecution; false prophets and imposters claiming to be Christ himself, and performing such heavy miracles that even the wisest might be deceived. He said that unless God intervened, humanity would be wiped out entirely, but that for the sake of the “elect” the time of trouble would be shortened.
In his discussion, Jesus also confirmed the visions of the Hebrew prophets. “Men’s hearts [will be] failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming upon the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” [emphasis added] (Luke 21: 26-27). In this passage, the original Greek word for “heavens” is “ouranos” – the root for uranium. One could read instead, “The powers of uranium shall be shaken. And then shall they see…” Uranium is shaken to produce atomic power. It is a matter of record and certainly a curious coincidence that the first nuclear experiments, detonated in New Mexico desert at Jornado del Muerto (journey of the dead) was called “Project Trinity.” When he beheld, on that fateful day, the awesome release of power wrought by their research, project director Robert Oppenheimer recalled the impact it had upon him. A passage from Sanskrit scripture echoed in his mind – Shiva, the destructive aspect of the Hindu trilogy, saying “I am become Death, destroyer of worlds…” The result of that dynamic fusion, the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, was code named “Baby Jesus.” This interpretation correlates with data from the King’s Chamber in the Great Pyramid – for the date exactly in the center, March 3-4, 1945, indicates the date of the first atomic bomb experiments. Also, the Hopi prophecies say the same thing. In a letter of appeal over the Black Mesa issue, the Hopi elders wrote to President Nixon, “The Great Spirit said that if a gourd of ashes is dropped upon the Earth, many men will die and that the end of this way of life is near at hand.” Matthew, Mark and Luke each report Jesus as saying right after this, “Verily, I say unto you, this generation shall not pass away until all be fulfilled.” And it looks very possible.
“Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” (Luke 21:36) This was his last advice to his disciples on the subject, for He was speaking also of the events concerning the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem, which came about in 70 A.D., and which would have been witnessed by disciples still living at that time.
“And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” (Mark 13:37)
St. John the Divine was the youngest and most beloved disciple of Jesus. He had sat at Christ’s side during the last supper, and it was to him that Jesus entrusted the care of His mother, Mary, during the crucifixion. We know that Jesus was aware that John had been chosen to receive the prophetic vision of the close of the age, because John records at the end of his own gospel that “The saying spread abroad among the bretheren that this disciple (John) was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but ‘If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?’” (John 21:23) After Christ’s ascension, the Roman authorities put a finger on John. His preaching activities concerning the new Christian doctrine posed a threat to the establishment religion and the government arranged for him to be forcibly exiled for apostasy. John was banished to the island of Patmos in the Mediterranean, and it was during his later life that he had the vision recorded in the last book of the Bible as “The Revelation.”
The Book of Revelation is an obvious account of some very real future shock, detailing signs of Christ’s second coming and the events that presage the final judgment of humanity. Although interpretation has always been difficult and unsatisfactory, the veils of mystery are gradually lifting, as world events today shed light on much of the allegory. Many volumes would be necessary to explore fully all the aspects of John’s amazing preview, but there are a few highly relevant trends forming today that relate to it.
The Revelation involves a series of happenings that occur in the spiritual world of the heavens. In the first part of the account, John sees a scroll with seven seals, each of which represents an aspect of retribution that must come to pass before the “harvest is gathered”, i.e., the last judgment when the “sheep will be separated from the goats.” The seals are opened one at a time, and the first four release that famous quartet, the four horsemen of the apocalypse, bringing pestilence, war, famine, and death upon the Earth. It is important to understand that the seven seals are allegorical to each of the seven chakras (energy centers, like valves between the etheric and physical bodies, which are related to the endrocrine system) of the human body. With the opening of each seal comes “revelation” and the opportunity to be purified and transformed by the particular energies released. The more successful we are in handling and transmuting within ourselves (i.e., within each chakra) the intense surge of purifying energy released by the opening of each seal, the less necessary it is for these releases to manifest in the external world as chaos and catastrophe.
